PODCAST. A Sick Day for Amos McGee is a labour of love. It oozes painstaking effort, remarkable talent and a contagious enjoyment of life. It’s the kind of thing that makes you feel grateful that there are still people out there prepared to undertake this kind of carefully slow-cooked project. Thank you!
In A Sick Day for Amos McGee, Erin Stead’s exquisitely pencil-drawn faces and use of colour bring zookeeper Amos, his animal friends and their story to life. It is a charming story about companionship and learning kindness through imitation, with several visual subplots involving the sock-wearing penguin and a red balloon, and a sort of parallel life for small animals including their own miniature bus-stop, with plenty more details to enjoy again and again and again and again.
